Mac OS X Six months ago, a certain security flaw in Java was fixed by Sun. This flaw was present in OpenJDK, GIJ, icedtea and Sun's JRE, but it got fixed in those. There's one important shipping Java implementation that still has not been fixed to remove this security flaw: Apple's Java.

The current Mac OS has Java 5 which is NOT open source. You have to be a paying licensee to get the code updates from Sun.

The current release of Java 6 is only partially open source.

Java 7 is 100% open source and hasn't been released yet.
